Topic: Assessing the Breastfeeding Dyad (75min)


Topic: Infant Oral Assessment (75min)
Normal human variation can sometimes be difficult to distinguish from minor anomalies that can impact feeding ability. This presentation uses clinical photographs to illustrate a systematic assessment of infant anatomy for optimal breastfeeding. Minor oral anomalies that may affect breastfeeding are highlighted, including tongue-tie, mandibular asymmetry due to torticollis, natal teeth, hemangioma, and palatal problems. Minor conditions are differentiated from those that might put infants at risk for significant feeding difficulties.


Topic: Is it the Tongue or the Breast? (90 min)
Breastfeeding difficulties can be rooted in maternal and/or infant pathology or management. This presentation reviews maternal conditions associated with low milk production and infant structural issues that interfere with breastfeeding initiation, as well as interventions to optimize outcomes for affected dyads.

Topic: Red Flags for Breastfeeding Helpers (45 min)

How do breastfeeding helpers distinguish between harmless temporary issues during lactation and signs and symptoms of serious conditions that require immediate referral to a health professional? This presentation illustrates maternal and infant “red flags” and helps differentiate those that are transient from those that may become dangerous.

Clinical Workshop ( Must have Credentials)


Topic: Assessing Suck: Swallow Patterns
Skillful lactation consulting requires the ability to interpret sucking speed, suck: swallow ratios, and coordination of swallowing and breathing. This session presents recent research on normal sucking rhythms of breastfeeding infants. Compensatory strategies used by infants with prematurity and cardiorespiratory anomalies are discussed and are illustrated with clinical videos.


Topic: Cervical Auscultation for Lactation Consultants

Cervical Auscultation (listening with a stethoscope over the baby’s neck or chin during feeding) is a useful tool for lactation consultants in assessing suck:swallow: breathe rhythms. Inaudible swallowing sounds become audible, and difficulties coordinating swallowing and breathing are more easily identified. This advanced practice presentation uses recorded sound files of cervical auscultation of breastfeeding infants to illustrate difficulties that can be identified using this method. Use of this information in clinical problem solving is stressed
